Slinky is a 7 year old black and tan mini dachshund. Slinky came to us in terrible shape. His owners had neglected his medical care and he needed help. Luckily, we have a great vet and Slinky is on the mend. Slinky's hair loss was caused by an underactive thyroid. He now takes his pills daily and is doing so much better. Soon he will have his full coat. Slinky is a total love and enjoys everyone, but he does enjoy hanging with the man of the house most. Slinky gets along great with cats, dogs and kids. He even seems to ignore the chickens. Slinky loves to cuddle up under his soft blankie or sleep next to you in bed. Slinky is very easy going and really does not ask for much. If you have a spot on the couch, under a blanket or your lap that is missing a dachshund, Slinky will gladly fill the void.
We do not have a kennel or facility to visit, all dogs are kept in foster homes until their forever homes are found.
Adoption Process: Once an approved application is on file, we will then set up a home visit. At that time we will bring the dog to the home in which you will all be sharing. We ask the entire family to be there that day. If we all agree on the placement, then the dog will stay with you that day.
